This past week I finally had a chance to use the new SU window die. I did purchase the matching stamps but decided on using other stamps i already had with this particular card.
I wanted to create a night time scene in my window view so I started by masking my moon and then sponging the night sky around it. I opted for lighter blue around the moon, going darker further away from the light source creating a natural glow. I even touched up the edges around the moon a little with pearlescent ink but the shimmer is really hard to see in my photos. The close up shows it a little more.
The scene was created with the Santa sleight stamp from Holiday Home and the trees are from lovely as a Tree.
